The BSc. in Agricultural economics programme was started in 1987. The programme endeavours to produce graduates who can participate in agricultural industry in a variety of roles, notably, self-employment where feasible, agricultural extension and credit administration, agricultural project planning and implementation, marketing consultancy and teaching agricultural economics.

The main emphasis of the programme inter alia include: agriculture, Farm Management, Economics, Marketing economics, Agricultural extension and practical work. The original programme has of necessity been pragmatic and subject to change, over the years consistent with changing circumstances and emphasis in farming industry. Currently the curriculum endeavours to produce practically oriented people who are competent and sensitive to address issues related to increased small farm productivity and development.
